thyssenkrupp Elevator was chosen by Austin College in Sherman, Texas to provide the elevators for their new IDEA Center building. The facility, designed to meet LEED Silver certification, will include renewable energy resources, ecologically friendly construction, materials to support efficient energy consumption, solar shading and natural light, rooftop rainwater collector for irrigation, and native vegetation landscaping. The synergy 300 elevators will provides greater flexibility in configuration, capacity and speed and the machine room-less design allows the designers to maximize building space. College officials anticipate the science building’s observatory will allow further outreach to the larger community and school children across North Texas. The building is expected to open in fall 2013.
